DU Admissions 2020 to begin at 5pm today, here are some major changes in admission process this year

Delhi University will begin the registration process for admissions to its various undergraduate, postgraduate, MPhil and PhD courses today, June 20. This year the admission process is delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Moreover, the pandemic has led to some major changes in the admission process this year.

Fully online admission process : Unlike previous years, the admission process will be completely online this year to ensure contact-less admission. Applicants will have to register and upload the scanned copies of the required documents on the registration portal at du.ac.in. They will not have to visit the university for document verification like last year. The document verification will be done when they are called to college. However, a final decision on document verification will be published in the admission bulletin that will be released soon.

No Open House: This year, DU will not conduct open house sessions for the aspirants. In order to follow social distancing, the university has decided not to hold open house sessions. Every year, DU conducts open house session for the aspirants who wish to take admission in any of the colleges of DU to familiarise the applicants with the admission process. However, there will be online discussions for which the volunteering students have been roped in.

YouTube Audition for Music Courses: Candidates applying for admission to Delhi University’s music courses this year will have to upload their performances on YouTube as part of their practical entrance tests, a move necessitated by restrictions in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic, varsity officials said. Candidates will be shortlisted for an online interview on the basis of these videos.


The candidates, for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses, will upload a video of their seven-minute performance on YouTube and mark it as unlisted [Unlisted YouTube videos are not for public viewing]. The link of the uploaded YouTube video will be submitted by the candidates along with the admission application form on the DU admission portal.

Arun Kumar Attree, a member of DU standing committee had earlier said “Since it is not possible to call students physically to the campus for auditions or trials, it’s been decided we will skip them entirely this year. Entrance exams for music courses will be conducted online by the faculty of music and fine arts, and admissions to physical education courses will be done based on merit certificates.”
